Corn corn corn

Here's a little fun fact from October's issue of Harper's. It takes three kernels of corn to make the amount of corn syrup in one piece of candy corn. But, there are eight times as many calories in a piece of candy corn as there are in a kernel of corn. Wow! Mind blowing huh? Also, corn makes poop look Santa Fe style chili. That's not really from Harpers, that's just a bit of research I did on my own.

Dude, that's not possible. You cannot create more energy. How do you get 8 times the energy when you use 3 times the corn? It violates the laws of thermodynamics. If anything there is less energy after processing it. Maybe 8 kernels and only 3 times the energy?
